The dentistry team at Preferred Dental Care Chelsea recognizes that a healthy smile can positively influence your overall happiness and well-being. Smiling has lasting effects that impact the professional, social and romantic areas of your life—but which smile is most genuine and effective when it comes to feeling and expressing real happiness?
Different facial muscles contract to form different kinds of smiles. Scientific studies show that the Duchenne smile, named for French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne, is most often associated with positive emotions. A Duchenne smile lifts the sides of the mouth by contracting the cheek muscles (zygomatic major) and the muscles encircling the eye socket (orbicularis oculi), which crinkle the eyes’ outside corners. This unique combination stimulates the feel-good areas of the brain.
Studies have also shown that genuine smiles can affect relationships. Smiling communicates warmth and openness to others, while simultaneously making you both feel and appear more confident and attractive. If you’re insecure about the appearance of your teeth, you are less likely to smile and to experience its many benefits. Don’t let chipped or missing teeth, tooth discoloration, or abnormal tooth alignment keep you from enjoying life.
